Per request, here is Rick Aguilera.  Rick had a great career as a closer with the Twins, making 3 All-Star games in a row in the early ’90s. He spent the final 1.5 seasons of his career with the Cubs from 1999-2000… and he wasn’t a very reliable closer.  He was a part-time closer in ‘99 and pitched respectfully, saving 8 games and pitching to an ERA of 3.69. This made him the full-time closer in 2000, and it was a typical Cubs disaster.  He did have 29 saves, but blew 8 saves and had a 4.91 ERA. The Cubs finished last. 
Did you know the Cubs traded Kyle Lohse for 1.5 years of service from a washed  up closer? Well they did.  Not that Lohse is an All-Star or anything, but based on some of the starters the Cubs have used in the past, Kyle Lohse doesn’t look that bad. Rick Aguilera’s sub-par performance opened the door for numerous other awful closers in Chicago. And for that, we will never forget him.
